Safety and Health Considerations for the Design of Fire and Emergency Medical Services Stations   [open pdf - 1MB]

"This manual was developed under contract for the U.S. Fire Administration to provide comprehensive guidelines for the design or remodeling of fire and emergency medical services (EMS) stations and other facilities (e.g., training centers) in terms of safety and health concerns. The purposes of this manual are: (1) To alert fire and emergency medical service personnel to potential safety and health hazards within the station and other facilities; (2) To identify pertinent regulations which affect the construction and inspection of fire and EMS stations which can be applied to station design for safety and health; (3) To establish compliance guidelines for new station construction/existing station modification with model specifications that can be adopted as part of a fire/EMS department's station design/construction bid package; and (4) To provide a checklist for station health and safety inspections and to assist evaluations of existing station designs."
